Every month I choose a photograph from Flickr to appear here.  Hopefully something interesting and informative.

Dyeing not dying

 

This month's photo is from me.  It's called "Dyeing not Dying".    It's a photo of a skein of wool (not spaghetti) being dyed in an old cauldron over a wood fire.  It was taken at a medieval fair in Otzberg, Germany.

The caption on the photo reads, "Dyeing - not to be confused with dying.

When you use this natural process to dye your cloth, you can have any colour, as long as it's green, yellow or brown."
